What's Under Your Sewing Machine?

What's Under My Sewing Machine?

No, it's not these beautiful roses from my husband, a celebration gift for being selected as a participant in the 2010 "The Art in Fiber Show" at the Copper Shade Tree gallery.

I'm grateful that my husband understands my art. Most importantly, he knows my heart. We celebrate everything . . . birthdays, anniversaries, successes, Fridays, vacations . . . and on occasion, we celebrate mistakes, especially when they result in lemonade.

This is what's under my sewing machine. I'm working on an art quilt, sort of practicing for the quilts I'll create for "The Art in Fiber Show."

This quilt is 16" x 20," a bit larger than my recent 8" x 10" art quilts for AAQI. I'm really enjoying working on this quilt.

Have a great weekend.

Congratulations, Fannie!
I am not in the least bit surprised.
As for what's under my sewing machine... not much right now. The sewing table is covered with my jewelry photography "booth" and various props. Last project I sewed was several oversized totes made of recycled denim to carry my paintings.
Blessings to you! xo
